WHAT WE THOUGHT:
Betsey Johnson may be having financial issues, but that didn't stop her from throwing quite the runway party. For spring, the designer seemed inspired by a family staycation in New York. She highlighted some of her favorite areas in the city, beginning with fashion-forward biking gear, perfect for cycling over the Brooklyn Bridge. Or how about a navy jacket and pants to wear to the Seaport? There were also tons of what we love Betsey for: floral frocks with petticoats and sexy, lacy lingerie-like getups for nights on the town. And for the finale, Johnson didn't disappoint, riding onto the runway on a bike before running into her famous cartwheel. We can always count on Betsey for a good time.
